The Ciate Mini Mani Month was one of the very first beauty advent calendars, way before everyone else jumped on the bandwagon, and I myself have bought multiple year’s versions as Ciate polishes are some of my absolute favourites. The Ciate Mini Mani Month 2019 version is currently a Cloud 10 Beauty exclusive, and is £51.10 but it is going to launch on the Ciate UK website and ASOS very soon. I haven’t had the best customer service from Cloud 10 so I wouldn’t order from them myself but it won’t be long until it’s available in more places.
If you’re new to the whole Ciate Mini Mani Month concept, it’s an advent calendar that contains at least 20 nail polishes as usually a couple of tools or effects to use with the polishes. Design wise, this year’s version is quite boring and plain. Usually they’re very colourful and fun, but this years is just plain silver. There are so many colourful, bright and vibrant advent calendars to choose from this year, I feel like this calendar design this year is so unlike Ciate’s usual fun branding. The contents inside are said to be worth £105, so you’re getting double your money’s worth in value.
I can’t give you a precise run down of each shade in the box right now as there’s very little information online about the shades, and every year they include some mystery shades for another fun element. This year there are six mystery shades and a glittery nail, but there’s also a full size polish which is usually found on Christmas Eve and there’s 20 polishes from their Gelogy range.
